In our era, our current society, art is a universal way of “personal” expression. Through social networks, people express themselves and share their emotions or feelings towards the world, it is so fast that art even has to adapt to that spontaneous fragility that with a “refresh” can be lost among the thousands of ideas. And only the one who goes “viral” becomes a hit.
But art goes beyond a platform of people who want to express themselves, art helps you get out of difficult situations and create something beautiful as a result of them. It helps you express your emotions in a way that words might not. It helps you to deepen your thoughts, and once reflected, it may help to clarify those of some observer. Art is a reflection of who we are as a society *sometimes* it is a reflection of our culture and how we are related to it.
Art is an influence in society, that is why it is so powerful as a means of communication, it is still a currency, that is why it is so important at the economic level, the art industry is an industry that moves millions.
The influence of art over sociopolitical and economic issues, moves the viewer, transmits emotions and ideas. It has the ability to educate, to raise awareness and break with the schemes. Art is more than an image, an idea, words or contexts. It is the human experience, it is more than a practice, it is more than a passion. It is part of life itself, it has been present since the most remote times and will continue to be part of our days regardless of trends, religion, race or ideologies.
